About My Family

I was born again when I was 13 years old and called to pastoral and missionary ministry when I was 16. I have been in pastoral ministry for 10 years.

I am married and have four wonderful children: Daniel, Esther, Elizabeth and Joshua.

About My Church Plant

I am a church planter in Alaska. By God's grace, we have been able to start one church in Palmer, Alaska, and are working to start multiple others in nearby communities.

To reach Alaska, we rely on biblical and effective evangelism methods and leadership development and discipleship processes.

NAMB Church Planting

Demonstrated Christian character is essential for missionaries and chaplains to gain credibility and build community. A missionary is a person who, in response to God's call and gifting, leaves his or her comfort zone and crosses cultural, geographic or other barriers to proclaim the gospel and live out a Christian witness in obedience to the Great Commission. The North American Mission Board supports missionaries serving across the United States, Canada and their territories. Churches are the missionary incubators and sending centers for missionaries through the Southern Baptist Convention. Missionaries serve in a variety of settings and face tremendous challenges. But the rewards are tremendous and life-changing. Missionaries have the privilege to represent their church and their Father in sharing the gospel as the primary focus of their activity. If you are interested in pursuing next steps as a potential missionary or chaplain from your church, explore the possibilities at


Pray for churches as they prepare to send out missionaries and church planters to push back lostness in Alaska. Pray God will raise up missions-minded church planters to go to the approximately100 church-less villages in Alaska. Pray for receptive hearts among the people in communities. Pray churches and individuals will partner with pastors and church planters and give of their time and talents. Pray the Father will send more workers into His harvest to join us.

Many missionaries build a team to join their ministry in prayer, participation, and provision. These friends, family and churches support missionaries beyond the tithes and offerings given within the church plant. Visit for NAMB's policy on providing for church plants.
